I hear it often, every day perhaps, that Bordeaux is too expensive. It isn't, the cost of the region's top wines may have sky rocketed but those have nothing to do with the average consumer. Those are investment grade wines that will sit for years, change hands, get sold at auction, and no one will get to taste what is inside of the bottle for decades to come. My offer today is, as Neal Martin wrote "the kind of wine that gives the Cru Bourgeois a good name." A value priced wine from the upper ranks of the Cru Bourgeois will be enjoyed as wine is meant to be. Chateau Pierre de Montignac's 2010 Grand Vin is everything good Bordeaux should be. Dark fruit, cassis, a touch of oak, finishing with those hints of graphite and gravel that instantly transport you to the Left side of the Gironde Estuary. With Free Shipping on a case, a firm 90 points from the Wine Advocate's Neal Martin, and less than $15 per bottle, this is the Bordeaux value of the vintage!
